Should school athletes have to be on honor roll to play in games?

  • You probably wont make into the pros!

    The chances are that you wont even make it into the pros, and therefore if you base your school education on 'well I can fail the test because I will just become a great sport player' then it probably wont work. I did a report on this topic in7th grade (got an A+, thank you) and found out that only one in 2,400 collage participants will make it into the pros.

  • School comes first

    You're a STUDENT-athlete. Being a student comes first. Playing sports is an opportunity and a privilege. As a student-athlete, you need to learn time management skills and find a way to balance your activities. It'll only prepare you for the future and if you plan on going pro, you might want a back up plan because there's a 6% chance of that occuring. An education typically gets you further in life than sports does.

  • STUDENT - Athlete

    The term student-athlete exists for a reason. You are a student first, and if you cannot work hard enough to maintain good enough grades to be on the honor roll, why should you be given the opportunity to work hard enough to gain playing time? School should always come first.

  • The rules are changing now

    The rules have changed, now more and more great athletes are being turned down because of a simple thing which is their grades. It should not be hard for someone to get honor roll or even a passing grade at least. Athletes should know how to balance sports and education because if they don't either they will fail in spots or in school.

  • Yes you should

    When you are a student athlete you should be on the honor roll because if you have your grades go down then you will be cut from the team if you are on a honor roll you can keep your grades up and play as an athlete so yes you should

  • No they shouldn't

    This guy plays 3 sports and its a lot of pressure and i feel bad for him and you should be able to play for anything, not just in a smelly PE class. Nobody likes school so i say forget it you dont need a smelly honor roll and would if the good players got bad grades then your team would suck.

  • Yes or at least they have to stay at a C

    Not everybody can be in a honors roll but they should still get the chance before someone who always gets bad grades on purpose. Not just will honors get the chance but so will everyone else who at least to have a good grade and if anyone gets below a C they should get suspended till they get their grade back up to a C or more

  • School comes first.

    School comes first. Kids need to learn more because when they are in collage they are going to regret doing a lot of sports . They miss class time and learning. It disrupts class when they leave. They can miss test and essays. Sports should be after school to be done.

  • School comes first

    School comes first because kids need to learn more than they do sports. Sports can be done in P.E. Because that is the time for sports. When done in class they can miss a test or a essay. They need to do sports after school or in P.E. Not in class.

  • Not everyone can understand subjects as well as other people.

    If students had to be on honor roll, now let's say someone has been dreaming of this since they were little, and let's say that they have a learning disability, it would be very hard for them to be able to play their dream sport. I believe that it should not be necessary.

  • No we don't

    I believe that they should at least have a passing grade, some students struggle in school, and the last thing they need is to be kicked out of a game cause they can't get an A. Rising expectations will lower many of the students confidence. Some might feel as if their not smart enough or good enough to play in any game. Some might feel left out

  • No they shouldnt

    Im a student athlete i am required to have above a 2.5 but I am a 3.0 and above student and I already have enough pressure trying to keep a spot on the team. At the same time if I dont make it to the pros I want to have a back up plan.

  • They should not

    It is already enough pressure to have to be good at the sport to make the team but then you also have to be on the honor roll? That sounds like too much pressure. I think that students should just have above a C to play in games and play in practice

  • No, school athletes should not have to be on honor roll to play in games.

    School athletes should be required to keep a basic level of good grades and attendance. However, they should not be required to be on the honor roll in order to be able to play in games. The common sports player usually has an above average grade point average in order to play in sports.

  • No,student athletes should not have to be on honor roll to play in games.

    It would be a little unrealistic to expect all athletes to be on the honor role.Different people have different abilities.Where some people excel in academics other people excel in athletics.It would probably be enough to expect all athletes to pass so they could at least a certain level of academic achievement.

  • Not every kid can make honnor roll all the time

    The honor roll is a hard thing to get onto and for some kids that have trouble in school can work their butts off and only scrape together a C (which in my school wont get you onto honor roll). However i think that kids should have at least a C in each class because school should come first but we should not exclude kids from having fun and playing sports just because they naturally struggle in school and even when they work hard at it they can only mannage a C or a B.

  • No no no

  • Parent and Teacher and maybe even students

    That school athletics should me and honor roll to play sports and games, School comes first you're a Student athlete, Being a student comes first.

  • No they should not.

    Just as school and learning the volume formula is some kids specialty, sports are other kids specialty. It is a privilege to be on the team, and I believe that as long as the kid(s) prove their skills to be on the team it should have no effect on how well they do in school.
